Metalhead film director Bill Zebub toils, trying to maintain his integrity, in the world of no-budget, subversive, genre film making.
Any review of INDIE DIRECTOR would be misguided–incomplete–without an introduction to its notorious creator, Bill Zebub. Maybe you’ve heard of him. Maybe you haven’t. In any case, he’s brash, manic, politically incorrect, obsessed with heavy metal music–and nudity–and, for the past two decades, has been churning out twisted, no-budget shock … Continue reading

Uwe Boll is known as that guy who directs video game movies. Youâ€™ve … Continue reading

In 1931 H.P. Lovecraft wrote his classic tale of alien horror, “The Whisperer in Darkness”. Lovecraft is now considered one of America’s foremost writers of horror fiction, standing alongside the likes of Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe.
Bold black and white scenes, no end credits but instead a cast of players, and a bunch of auspicious practical effects, is this a sci-fi movie from the 50â€™s? Not exactly, itâ€™s only … Continue reading
A vacationing family encounters an alien threat in this thriller based on the real-life Brown Mountain Lights phenomenon in North Carolina.
I was in a particularly good mood before I sat down to watch Alien Abduction, another entry in the found footage canon of films that I abhor so mightily. And why was I in a good mood you ask? Because I had watched a film called Afflicted a few days … Continue reading
In a small town, people are being murdered by having their throats cut.
Tiny Tim took the world by storm in the late 1960s. He covered a song called Tiptoe Through the Tulips with a ukulele and skyrocketed to popularity. Sadly, it would be his only popular song. The novelty would soon wear off and Tiny Tim would fade away from the pop culture zeitgeist and enter obscurity. In 1987, he re-emerged … Continue reading

Italian horrorâ€”promises a lot, doesnâ€™t it? Well, donâ€™t expect much from Bloodlineâ€”at least nothing even slightly approximate to masterpieces like those produced from the twistedly ingenious mind of Dario … Continue reading
Red Scream Ghost Hunt was an experiment in “organically-built minimalist cinema”. Rather than a script, we had an idea – “group of ghost hunters exploring the dark passages of the Buffalo Central Terminal (BCT)”. We then took a group of actors and non-actors who happened to have a free weekend and who were interested in being able to explore the BCT and play “ghost hunt”. Groups of actors were given … Continue reading
The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-shooter Mick Taylor.
Back in 2005, director Greg McLean told us the story of Mick Taylor and his predilection for slaughtering tourists who happened to wander near his home in Wolf Creek. The first film was a taut, nerve wracking exercise in horror that left audiences stunned at its brutality. Here we are … Continue reading
Drug dealing gangsters enter into battle with a narcotics task force; both parties have secret weapons.
Youâ€™ve scraped the bottom of the barrel. Youâ€™ve scraped, and scraped, and scrapedâ€”until you think you can scrape no more. Youâ€™ve seen TROLL 2, SINS OF THE FLESHAPOIDS, THEY SAVED HITLERâ€™S BRAIN. You donâ€™t believe it can possibly get any worse. I mean, how could it? How could a movie be more cheap, incoherent, and ludicrous … Continue reading
A cryptic phone call sets off a dangerous game of risks for Elliot, a down-on-his luck salesman. The game promises increasing rewards for completing 13 tasks, each more sinister than the last.
Since Richard Connell warped the man vs. man plot archetype in his 1924 short story â€śThe Most Dangerous Game,â€ť the thematic device of have-nots being treated as disposable, unwilling entertainment for those who have remains fertile ground for genre artists.Â … Continue reading

An ancient resurrected evil is loose at Western New York’s largest and most terrifying haunted attraction: the House of Horrors. It’s goal- to forever open the gates of Hell on Earth.
Where do I begin? One word can accurately describe this poorly acted attempt at a clever filmâ€”typical. And in this typicality, despite its undeniably amusing moments, it fails to deliver. This is surprising, considering the bulk of the material that … Continue reading
